It appears as if Joakim Noah is going the way of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and not speaking to the media.

Understandably upset after the Chicago Bulls traded away teammate and good friend, Luol Deng, Noah refused to speak to reporters that evening. Nobody gave it much thought considering Noah was distraught over the trade, but days later Noah has still refused to speak and reportedly told a Chicago Bulls official he has no intentions of doing so:

Another day, another media blow-off by Joakim Noah, who has not spoken publicly since the Bulls traded his friend and former teammate, Luol Deng, to Cleveland.

It was believed that he would address the media – all of four Chicago-based reporters – after the Bulls’ Friday morning shootaround at the Bradley Center. But Noah told a team official that he would remain mute.

Noah himself has been the subject of potential trade rumors and it appears there is growing animosity over the Bulls roster blowup.

Can’t help but wonder how long Noah sticks around in the Windy City if this continues.
